Michel Roux Jr talks chocolate

In ‘Chocolate Perfection with Michel Roux Jr’, the restaurateur and judge and presenter of BBC’s prime time show, ‘MasterChef: The Professionals’ explores why we’re addicted to this sweet foodstuff and uncovers its rich and varied history, from a drink of Aztec emperors to the aphrodisiac of choice at the court of Louis XIV in Versailles.

For Michel, the best chocolate in the world is to be found in France. He wants to create his own unique chocolate flavour to use in his cooking, and this one-hour film follows him as he immerses himself in the world of chocolate, from the raw cocoa bean to some of the most refined and unusual chocolate creations the world has seen.
